Real Madrid president Florentino adds Chelsea boss Conte to shortlist

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is on the radar of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

The Sun says Conte is high up on a list of candidates to succeed current coach Zinedine Zidane who is under increasing pressure.

Conte still has a year and a half to go on his £10million-a-season deal at Chelsea but has also been linked with a return to Italian giants AC Milan.

With constant speculation that he is not entirely happy with life at Stamford Bridge and fancies a move home, Milan were the early front-runners to persuade Conte to quit England in the summer.

Madrid, currently fourth in LaLiga, were forced to endure the embarrassment of finishing as runners-up to Tottenham in their Champions League group this season.

And as a result they have since been drawn against highly-fancied Paris Saint-Germain — led by £198m Brazilian hotshot Neymar — in the round of 16.
